Krakatoa Erupts 1883 The beginning of the amazing events at Krakatoa in 1883 date to May 20 when there were initial rumblings and venting from the volcano, which had been dormant for about 200 years. Over the next three months, there were regular small blasts from Krakatoa out of three vents. On August 11, ash started spewing from the small mountain. Eruptions got progressively stronger until August 26, when the catastrophe began. At noon, the volcano sent an ash cloud 20 miles into the air and tremors triggered several tsunamis. This turned out to be just a small indication, however, of what would follow the next day. For four-and-a-half hours beginning at 5:30 a.m. on August 27, there were four major and incredibly powerful eruptions. The last of these made the loudest sound ever recorded on the planet. It could be heard as far away as central Australia and the island of Rodrigues, 3,000 miles from Krakatoa. The air waves created by the eruption were detected at points all over the earth. The eruption had devastating effects on the islands near Krakatoa. It set off tremendous tsunamis that overwhelmed hundreds of villages on the coasts of Java and Sumatra. Water pushed inland several miles in certain places, with coral blocks weighing 600 tons ending up on shore. At least 35,000 people died, though exact numbers were impossible to determine. The tsunamis traveled nearly around the world--unusually high waves were noticed thousands of miles away the next day. The volcano threw so much rock, ash and pumice into the atmosphere that, in the immediate area, the sun was virtually blocked out for a couple of days. Within a couple of weeks, the sun appeared in strange colors to people all over the world because of all the fine dust in the stratosphere. Over the ensuing three months, the debris high in the sky produced vivid red sunsets. In one case, fire engines in Poughkeepsie, New York, were dispatched when people watching a sunset were sure that they were seeing a fire in the distance. Further, there is speculation that Edvard Munch's 1893 painting "The Scream" depicting a psychedelic sunset may have actually been a faithful rendering of what Munch saw in Norway in the years following the eruption of Krakatoa. The amount of dust in the atmosphere also filtered enough sun and heat that global temperatures fell significantly for a couple of years. Krakatoa was left only a tiny fraction of its former self. However, in the intervening years, a small island, Anak Krakatoa ("Son of Krakatoa") has arisen from the sea. It is growing at an average of five inches every week. This island is receiving a great deal of scientific attention, as it represents a chance to see how island ecosystems are established from scratch.

ZIP Codes Invented 1963 American postal addresses used to be the essence of simplicity: street address, city, and state. In 1946 numbers were added to the addresses of large cities to designate delivery zones. For example, an address might include 'Minneapolis 16, Minnesota'--meaning the mail was going to delivery zone #16 in that city. By the early 1960s a more general system was needed. On July 1, 1963 non-mandatory five-digit ZIP codes were announced for the whole country. ZIP is an acronym for 'Zone Improvement Plan.' The numerals in the ZIP codes progressively got larger as the addresses moved westward. ZIP codes became mandatory for second-class and third-class mail in 1967. Robert Moon, an employee of the post office, is considered the father of the ZIP code. He submitted his proposal in 1944 while working as a postal inspector. In 1983, large delivery centres had an additional four digits preceded by a hyphen added to their ZIP codes.

Marijuana Party Formed In 2000, a new political party was established in Canada--the Marijuana Party. The ultimate in one-issue parties, the Marijuana Party was established solely to end Canada's prohibition on cannabis. It has no formal platform on any other issue. In the 2000 Canadian federal election, the Marijuana Party ran candidates in 73 ridings, and received more than 66,000 votes. (That was about 2 percent of the overall vote total in those ridings.) In the three subsequent federal elections since 2000, the Marijuana Party fielded progressively fewer and fewer candidates each time. In 2008, only eight ridings featured Marijuana Party candidates. That year the party's biggest accomplishment was a fourth-place finish in the far north riding of Nunavut, where the Marijuana Party candidate finished ahead of the Green Party candidate.

Vanishing TV Character - Judy Winslow Jaimee Foxworthy played Judy, the youngest of the three Winslow children, on the ABC sitcom Family Matters. At least she did on the first four seasons from 1989 to 1993. When the show's focus started to shift towards oddball neighbor Steve Urkel, Judy's role got progressively smaller. When Foxworthy demanded a pay hike for the fifth season, the producers just dropped her from the show with no explanation. (One fan comically declared Judy was sent to her room in one episode--and never came back.) Judy Winslow thus became a noteworthy victim of Chuck Cunningham Syndrome (named for Richie and Joanie Cunningham's older brother on Happy Days who vanished after a few episodes and was never heard from or referred to again): For the rest of the series' nine-season run, there were several times when the Winslows said they had just two children. As a young adult, Foxworthy suffered from substance-abuse issues. She ended up working in pornographic films for a short time using the name Crave.
